Shaping inclusive societies is an opportunity for leaders that are passionate about the topic of migration and creating truly inclusive societies in which all people can realize their full potential and talents, to reflect, connect and learn collectively. By joining this program, you will be part of a global network of leaders from Canada, Germany and Morocco that are curious and committed to addressing local challenges with a global perspective in mind. The program aims to strengthen local cross-sectoral teams made up of newcomers* and locals* in Germany, Morocco and Canada that are working to address challenges related to inclusion, equality and connection among newcomers and locals in their regional context. What makes this program stand out is the focus we place on awareness building.
Over 14 months, teams will be guided in a process to reflect on and question their mindset and approach towards migration and inclusion-related topics from a personal as well as professional standpoint. Building on this awareness, the program will weave in capacity building skills related to social impact planning, co-creation methods and inclusive language, as well as individual team coaching and coaching of all participants in order to build a community of conscious and impactful leaders in inclusion.

Shaping Inclusive Societies is looking for two teams each from Germany, Morocco and Canada who:
It is important that you have a leadership position in the organization, sector or community that permits you to make strategic decisions and changes to the way your organization, project or community works. We are interested in working with teams that are also capable of having an impact on their partners and networks so as to increase the reach of our overall impact. This can include people working for organizations or working on freelance basis.
We will review all applications in September. We will interview a short-list of applicants early September in order to finalize our selection by mid-September.
Both are possible. The important thing is that you have put some thought into the root causes of the challenge and can give details about the (future) target groups and design of the (future) project in the application form.
Unfortunately, not. We are building an intensive experience for you to be part of a global team of passionate and committed leaders. Our workshops and interventions build upon each other, and we need everyone on board to ensure group dynamics and peer support.
Our intention is to keep the reporting as simple as possible for you. To learn from your experience, we will gather feedback from you in the form of brief surveys and interviews on 3 occasions and envision a clear and concise 5-page report at the end. Details on the exact scope and templates will follow after a successful application.
